The overall story is beginning to advance more rapidly than in the past, thank goodness. The answeres are falling into place.
Stygian was described as handsome and strong and Liza was stubborn but didn't know why. I had a very difficult time getting to know both characters. Ms. Leigh pretty much had to do it that way because of the nature of the story. One minute the heroine was one character than the next she was someone else. The hero had to react to all of the personalities emerging. Thus you never got a good hold on who these people really were.
As usual Lucas is hated and heartless.
Baby Amber is not doing so well.
and the mating is to be a good one but secret.
